Actually, there’s no real update at my older post regarding the python script I created for automatically downloading multiple youtube videos. And there’s also nothing wrong with it. Problem is, I tried downloading videos last week and this is the output of my python script:
Retrieving video webpage... done.Extracting URL "t" parameter... failed.Error: unable to extract URL "t" parameter. Try again several times. It may be a temporary problem. Other typical problems:* Video no longer exists. * Video requires age confirmation but you did not provide an account. * You provided the account data, but it is not valid. * The connection was cut suddenly for some reason. * YouTube changed their system, and the program no longer works. Try to confirm you are able to view the video using a web browser. Use the same video URL and account information, if needed, with this program. When using a proxy, make sure http_proxy has http://host:port format. Try again several times and contact me if the problem persists.
Which usually comes out when the youtube-dl code has been updated most probably because youtube made changes on how they serve their videos. Download/save the latest youtube-dl here and copy it again to your $PATH (in Linux) or you can again refer to my previous post about youtube-dl. Remember, no changes have been made to my python script, you only have to update the youtube-dl code.
After updating my copy of youtube-dl on my Linux box, I’m off to downloading more videos from youtube (^)__(^)
